MCA: Raila welcome to mentor Kakamega youth, not Kuria

16 June 2016, 18:58 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga is the right person to mentor the youth in Kakamega, not Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.

Kuria was to meet the Kakamega youth in Mumias town last Saturday, but the mentorship and empowerment event was deferred as some leaders questioned his leadership qualities to mentor youth.

According to Mahiakalo MCA Cleophas Malala who was on the frontline in opposing Kuria’s visit to the county, Raila has enormous leadership qualities which he can pass on to the youth who are future leaders of this country as compared to the Kuria.

“Raila Odinga’s experiences are enormous. He was a youth when Kenya gained independence. He therefore knows the vision that was then painted for our country by our founding fathers. It's this experience that we must tap into. He was among the detained leadership that felt the weight of KANU misrule and dictatorship that culminated in the clamor for multiparty democracy and the clarion call for the Bill of Rights.

“It is this experience that we must allow him share. He was in the forefront for the fight of a second liberation. The repeal of the independence constitution and the promulgation of a more citizen oriented New Constitution. It's these nuggets of wisdom that we must be prepared to receive. He was in the post election leadership that sought to rebuild a torn apart national and re-cultivate good governance,” Malala said.

Malala said the Kenyan youth who want to get a clearer vision of the country’s past can only get it from Raila.

“It is for this and much more reasons that our youths must be encouraged to interact with him, to tap from him, be inspired by him, learn from him and if possible to get a clearer vision of our past.

“This mentorship would be much more informative compared to the Moses Kuria balderdash that we almost plunged into,” Malala added.

Raila is expected to address the youths from the county at Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology this Saturday.

Other speakers at the event will be Kakamega Governor Wycliff Oparanya, Senator Daisy Nyongesa, Dr. Kevin Osuri and Yusuf Omete.
